Fourth of July to me means GRILLING. How about you? What are your favorite traditions? When I thought about what I wanted to grill up and share with you today, I thought FRUIT! I’ve actually been obsessing about pineapple, coconut AND watermelon lately – thus today’s recipe! So my contribution this month are these fresh and delicious Grilled Pineapple and Watermelon Fruit Kabobs! Now it’s not quite as simple as popping the fruit on the skewer and calling it a day. Nope, these babies also have a pina colada glaze! YES I found a way to incorporate coconut as well. It’s a vortex of yumminess. Yes, that’s totally a thing.

Fresh pineapple and watermelon for fruit kabobs

I started out by tossing some skewers in water. You’ll want to soak them for at least 30 minutes before grilling. I also preheated my grill to 400 degrees while I prepped the fruit kabobs. Then I simply grabbed fresh watermelon and pineapple and chopped them up in chunks. I slid the chopped fruit on to the soaked skewers.

Pineapple and Watermelon Fruit Kabobs We could stop right there, couldn’t we? Honestly my boys were begging me to. I may have given in and given them chunks of fruit while I was grilling. Then I whipped up a simple pina colada glaze. I had coconut milk on hand but you could use cream of coconut as well.

Simply whisk together the coconut milk with pineapple juice to taste. Then baste your fruit kabobs with the pina colada mixture and head out to the grill!

I grilled the fruit kabobs a few minutes on each side. And voila! Once done, you have amazing Grilled Pineapple and Watermelon Fruit Kabobs!

Don’t get me wrong. The fruit on it’s own is delicious and I’ve been eating the leftovers all week. But there was something about adding in the coconut and grilling that brought out AMAZING flavors. You’ve got to give it a try and let me know what you think! So that’s my contribution this month, I hope you love it!

  6. My kids would LOVE these, Kimberly!! I have to admit I do not like watermelon (or cantaloupe or honey dew, etc) but I have NEVER tried grilling it and I wonder if that will put it over the edge for me? I am trying it ASAP. I am tired of missing out on watermelon fun! And a Pina Colada glaze?? Yes.
